FOR many there’s an air of back to work today and a sense that the summer is drawing to a close.
There’s still a week left of the school holidays but with the last summer bank holiday having come and gone, it’s a case of returning to routine for many.
It’s been a summer of contrasts. There’s been the euphoria of the Olympics and still with the Paralympics to look forward to from tomorrow.
But there’s been the wet and dismal weather which cancelled even more events in south and west Cumbria yesterday, combined with far from sunny news on the economy.
So to cheer you up on your first day back today, consider this. There are job advertisements in the Evening Mail today for a range of posts at Glaxo in Ulverston. It is not every area in the land which can look forward with such optimism to the economic boost a new factory of a major employer will be bringing.
Then there’s news in today’s edition of the launch of a “Take The Plunge” initiative by Furness Enterprise to get more people into setting up their own business.
This is on the back of the Coastal Communities Fund grant Furness Enterprise did so well to win.
Not too far down the coast in Blackpool, there is disappointment they missed out on funding from this source. That highlights we should be celebrating this success and, when it comes to the wider view, looking on the bright side and doing what we can to make this an even better place to live, work and play.
